In July, it’ll be six years since Amy Winehouse’s death. She passed at 27, the subject of brutal treatment from tabloids while battling addiction. Now, the Jewish Museum has opened its exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait to add another, more personal layer to Winehouse’s story. The exhibition was co-curated with Winehouse’s brother, Alex, and his sister-in-law, Riva.
In addition, Henry Hate, who was a dear friend and Amy’s tattoo artist, gifted the exhibition the original photo used for Winehouse’s pin-up girl tattoo and the drawing he did as a template.
“She gave people a perspective into the human conditions through her lyrics and music, and connection is a very healing facet to human nature. If the exhibition brings insight into that, then hopefully they will stop looking at a caricature and start looking at a living, breathing human girl.” – Henry Hate for Vice
